Abstract

A dynamic estimation and control problem with a strategic sensor is considered. The strategic sensor may provide corrupted messages about the state measurements of a discrete-time linear time-invariant dynamical system to the system operator (or the controller). The system operator then uses this information to construct an estimate of the state of the system (and perhaps private variables of the sensor). The estimate is used to control the system to achieve the operator's desired objective. The problem is formulated as a game, which might be conflicting to that of the strategic sensor. An equilibrium of the game is computed and its properties are investigated.
